The Erie Lackawanna Railroad was formed by the merger of the Erie Railroad with the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western in October, 1960. In this fascinating set by 16mm film photographer Emery Gulash, you will see the very beginning of the merger paint schemes, coupled with the variety of locomotive equipment garnered from the two roads.
Volume one begins with 1962 early generation diesels and post merger paint schemes in the western states: Ohio and Indiana. The action moves to the eastern end of the railroad in Pennsylvania and New York with freight action and electric commuters. Emery then chases a steam powered fan trip over the former Erie Railroad main line to Binghampton.
Next we continue with the 1973 steam fan trip chase, now running on Delaware, Lackawanna & Western trackage. You will see spectacular action and impressive scenes of the Tunkhannock Viaduct and other landmark locations. More eastern end freight and commuter action follows. The return to the western end in 1974 takes this Heritage program to the finale of the E-L merger with the formation of Conrail in 1976.
